John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel

The John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel was created in 1973 by writers and critics Harry Harrison and Brian W. Aldiss to honor Campbell's name. Unlike other major science fiction awards, such as the Hugo and the Nebula, recipients are selected by a jury.

Since 1979 the award ceremony has been held during the annual Campbell Conference of the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas. It is often the focus of the weekend-long conference that also includes readings and discussions of the writing, illustration, publishing, teaching, and criticism of science fiction.

In 1976, the jury felt that no truly outstanding novels had been published during the previous year and the award was given retrospectively to a novel published in 1970. In 1994, there was a breakdown in the nomination process and no award was given.
